Health Care Fairness
Find Your State
Know the laws in your state that protect LGBT people and people living with HIV.
LGBT people and those living with HIV may face discrimination in the provision of health care services, and are especially vulnerable to breaches of confidentiality in medical settings, and to violations of their personal autonomy regarding reproductive decisions, sexual health, gender expression, transition-related care, HIV care and other matters. Through litigation, education and policy advocacy, Lambda Legal protects the rights of LGBT people seeking health care and works to ensure that medical professionals and healthcare facilities understand their responsibility to treat LGBT patients fairly.
